Master Thesis

For the Master of Computer Science a Master Thesis needs to be written. 20 ECTS-AP are allocated to the Master Thesis. The Master Thesis is a scientific assignment, proving that you are able to autonomously work on a topic from an area within Computer Science (Curriculum § 7).


  • The supervisor needs to be selected from this list (Examination Board). If you would like a different supervisor, please contact Dr. Peter Thoman, Associate Dean of Studies. Inform yourself thoroughly and conduct talks with all research groups, before deciding on the topic of your Master Thesis!

  • Compulsory Module 6 - Preparation of the Master's Thesis (7,5 ECTS): Agreement on the topic, the scope and the form of the Master’s Thesis on the basis of a brief summary of the contents (abstract) as well as agreement on the work processes and the study progress. Planning of an appropriate time frame for the completion of the Master’s Thesis.
    Learning Outcome: After successful completion of this module, the students will be able to write a brief summary of the content of the planned Master’s Thesis (abstract), to outline an anticipated schedule and to conclude a written Master’s Thesis agreement.

    Form 'Assessment of the compulsory module: Preparation of the Master’s Thesis' (in German)
    - Assessment: successfully completed / unsuccessfully completed

    Form 'Application for the Master's Thesis' (in German)
    - The Examination Office will obtain the signature of the Director of Studies


Possible topics for a Master Thesis can be found on the respective website of the research groups:

Pay attention to the following points:

For completion of the Master Thesis approximately half a year (full time) has to be taken into account.

The Master Thesis has to be written in English.

In case the supervisor needs to be changed, two forms have to be completed:
